RE: [Distillers] Corriander in Gin - seeds or root
- Yep, that could be right. Although it maybe the Anise star oil that was
dropping out of solution, as that was probably the predominant aroma. I will
try again with a higher abv. I am still going to persevere with the
botanicals in the column approach, and will post the results when I am done.

cloudiness was due to too low an ABV ?? I did some tests a few months
ago with a high %ABV juniper berry/coriander/carddoman etc. essence
produced in my small botanical still & when ever just a few drops of the
essence were added to a neutral spirit of anything less than about 39%
ABV things started to go cloudy/milky. The cloudiness would disappear as
the spirit was gently warmed up but came back as it cooled down, someone
on the group suggested that the cloudiness is due to minute droplets of
the essential oils dropping out of solution.
